Abstract

A co-operative study to investigate the efficacy of some relatively inexpensive regimens of chemotherapy in the domiciliary treatment of pulmonary tuberculosis was conducted by the International Union against Tuberculosis from 1966 to 1968 in 9 centres in seven countries. The New Delhi TB Centre was one of the participating centres. Interim results of treatment of the 59 patients included in the trial from this Centre have already been reported earlier (Pamra et al, 1968). The present report is based on the final results of the stipulated one year's treatment.
